The Everlasting Love Affair

The Everlasting Love Affair

Love Affair created a sensation with their 1968 smash hit ‘Everlasting Love’. The song topped the UK charts and the group’s lead singer Steve Ellis became a teenage idol. His powerful and emotive voice was perfectly displayed on the orchestrated single that shot him to fame. Although hailed as a pop star, he had grown up working with R&B bands and could sing everything from bluesy ballads to soulful standards. His impressive range and confident style is displayed on this excellent 15-track debut album, first released as ‘Everlasting Love’ in 1968.

It comprises the debut hit single, as well as impressive versions of Cat Steven’s ‘First Cut Is The Deepest’ and Michael D’Abo’s classic ‘Handbags & Gladrags’. The band’s later chart hits, ‘Rainbow Valley’ and ‘A Day Without Love’, are also included. Steve Ellis tells the remarkable story of Love Affair in an exclusive interview for the informative liner notes.

Together with nine bonus tracks - including rare A and B-sides spanning 1967 to 1969, plus a rare Italian language version of the hit single ‘A Day Without Love’ - this CD is a musical love affair to savour.
